Why did Donald Trump viciously and profanely lash out at “Adam Schitt” last week, even as Trump was busy pretending to make nice with so many other Democratic leaders? The answer seemed pretty straightforward: Adam Schiff is the incoming Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and he’s going to investigate and expose Trump’s Russia scandal – including the money part.
Adam Schiff is hiring money laundering experts and forensic accounting experts for the House Intel Committee, according to a new report from the Daily Beast. This is an unmistakable sign that Schiff, a former prosecutor, is planning to follow the money.
Back when Special Counsel Robert Mueller was first appointed, he famously hired prosecutors with money laundering backgrounds, and now Schiff is taking the same approach. This sets up a situation in which Schiff will be airing Trump’s dirty (money) laundry in nationally televised congressional hearings, shortly after Mueller has taken his big swing at Trump.
So this can be taken as not only a sign that Adam Schiff and the House Democrats plan to make a big deal out of Donald Trump’s financial ties to Russia and other foreign enemies, but that they expect Robert Mueller to soon lay the groundwork for it before the new House session begins. These are interesting times to say the least, and suffice it to say that Trump is about to be up Schiff creek.
